My name is Lisa Rudley and I'm a long-time resident with 3 Ossining school-aged children. I’ve dedicated significant efforts to serve our schools, both locally and statewide. I served on the PTA council as Treasurer and Secretary and as SEPTO president. I co-founded NYSAPE, a grassroots organization comprised of over 50 parent and educator groups across NY.

Professionally, I have a strong financial and operations background. As a solutions and action oriented person, I want to take all the knowledge and the education network of information I have built, and use it to make Ossining schools even stronger.

My amazing running mate, Diana Lemon is a long-time resident who is a fierce and empowering advocate for so many in the Ossining community. As a leader, she reenergized the NAACP Ossining chapter and has served on various local committees and was most recently asked to serve on the Ossining's Downtown Redevelopment Working Committee. Diana has strong knowledge of how Albany works. She is working hard to get an important bill passed that was inspired by her daughter Dream's journey and this legislation will help other children that are medically fragile.

Professionally, Diana is the Director of Legal & Community Relations at the Westchester County Bar Association. Diana is a much needed voice for the school board and will undoubtedly bring fresh, new ideas that will enhance the strong work of this board.

It would be an honor to have your vote on May 16. #LemonRudley2017
